My client told me to design a banner @3x, i am confused what does a @3x mean.?
what type of banner....
I'm guessing it's a web banner in which case this would be to cover hi resolution displays which use 3x pixel ratios
I am so sorry about that I'm do not help to you. You should again ask your client what type of banner he needed.
That may have been a typo from their end.
Maybe it means to work at three times the final size of the banner? @ = at, 3 = three, x = times. Either way that's terrible communication.
Nah, it's most likely as I said above back in January but never received a reply... @3x is css media query talk for mobile phone 'retina displays' with a pixel ratio (aka scaling factor) set at 3, ie a phone with a 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD resolution (samsung s6) which has a pixel ratio set at 3 would show a website as if it's on a '853 x 640' screen. The iphone retina used @2x, @3x and even @4x is for even higher resolutions screens.
Damn, I didn't notice the date. So many bloody necro threads rising from the grave in the forums these days.
tell me about it.... I've now started using the warning points system
I think this is for retina display, so when it is zoomed in, then it will not be blurred unlike the screens without retina.
@3x is for iOS 8 resolution
